Bad Wine Day?


That expensive case of Burgundy has been stunning so far, then all of a sudden, a bad bottle. Same wine, same case, it’s inexplicable. Or, maybe you’re drinking on a “Root Day.” Every day is designated either a root, flower, fruit or leaf in Maria and Matthias K Thun’s Biodynamic Sowing and Planting Calendar (flower and fruit being best for wine tasting). This concept may cause some snickering, but biodynamics is taken very seriously in the vinyard these days. Many world-class estates such as Domaine Leroy in Burgundy, Michel Chapoutier in the Rhone have become committed biodynamic properties over the past decade.

    Maria Thun has gardened all her working life and is an authority on biodynamics. Her annual sowing and planting calendar is published in 18 languages.
